I should learn to not be surprised when I experience synchronistic situations that mirror the lessons that I am teaching to my Release Density & Shift Your Life group in my personal life, but I'll tell ya, it gets me every single time. One of the homework assignments I gave my group this week was to complete a digital detox since we were talking about identifying what is no longer serving them in their present space.
The lesson came full circle as I was just mindlessly scrolling through Facebook and noticed an unsavory comment from a distant relative on another relative's posted video. Normally I wouldn't have even acknowledged the interaction, but I was irked by the audacity of the comment and obviously didn't think it was appropriate or funny.
Just because someone is "family", related to you by blood or marriage, or simply because you have known them for an extended period of time does not mean they have the right to invade your personal space with their negativity and bullshit. So take a moment and think to yourself, when's the last time you just shook your head as you read someone's commentary on social media? Sounds like you may benefit from a digital detox. Read on to see how I recommend starting your digital detox!
Love and Light,
While I was sitting outside thinking about writing a post reflecting on Rosh Hashanah, I heard a song start to drift around the apartment. "You can't always get what you want" eerily rang through my space and answered with "but you get what you need". And just like that, a song that I had been familiar with, changed meanings entirely.
Sometimes we don't know what we want. This time last year I had no idea what my future would hold. None of the beautiful gifts that this year has created were even on my radar. When we trust, we get what we need. This year I published my first book, met and got engaged to the man of my dreams and grew closer with my family.
The New Year is a time of reflection and celebration. To examine the highs and the lows of the past year; to honor the good done and look for the silver linings within the challenges we have faced. Sometimes the things that we have faced are not what we first thought or even imagined possible, but can look back with accomplishment. We are not who we once were and never can be that person again, with each and every day we grow and evolve into our truest version of ourselves.
With that thought, I leave you with my best wishes for a Shana Tova (Happy New Year)! May this be your best year yet! I can't wait to see what we have in store for 5777! It's feelin pretty lucky to me with the triple 7's 🎰

Recently an old friend of mine from high school and I reconnected via the magic of Facebook. He was surprised to see that I had written a book, and during conversation he mentioned that he wanted to hear my thoughts on addiction. I wanted to gather my thoughts before I talked to him, but I also needed to get clear for myself on what addiction meant to me personally. I soon received guidance that this was an opportunity to start an open conversation about the concept of addiction.
The first thing that crossed my mind when he asked me was, “why does he want to talk to me about addiction? What does he know?” Fear and embarrassment were my initial reactions to his inquiry. Was I more of a mess than I remember? Maybe. Did people talk about me? Possibly. Did any of that matter anymore? After taking a few deep breaths and re-centering myself, I began to recognize that the fear and embarrassment over discussing addiction were old emotions and, no, it didn’t matter anymore. If I could help someone shift their perspective on addiction, then it was time for me to address the issue for myself as well, once and for all.
Arielle's love of writing has afforded her the opportunity to apprentice with best selling authors, intern with community leaders, and blog for international corporations. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Human Communication and a Certificate in Writing from Arizona State University in 2013.
"All of my experiences have been amazing!! Just wish I lived closer so I could have more face to face sessions! No words can truly describe the amazing abilities Arielle has. The first day I met her I felt an immediate connection. I have lived a very hard life of constant anxiety from years of mental and emotional abuse, my walls are very high as far as who I let in or feel comfortable with . I am a skeptic and rarely trust anyone I meet. Anytime I am near her or even just speaking to her via phone or FaceTime I have an immediate sense of calm. Just recently I made a big move across the country and I have gone to her for guidance every step of the way. Because of her I have found myself again. I can honestly say I am the happiest I have been in 15 years. I know I am in control of my own destiny and the life choices I have made are mine and mine alone but without Arielle's constant support and genuine caring guidance I would still feel as alone as I've felt my whole life." - A.G., Davenport, IA
